Publix Super Markets has established a program to allow customers and associates at its Tennessee stores to make donations to a disaster relief fund for those impacted by recent weather events in Middle Tennessee.

Customers may donate any amount by adding it to their grocery totals when checking out at any Tennessee Publix locations. Donations will be channeled through the American Red Cross and designated specifically for Southern Tornadoes and Floods relief. The end date for the program will be determined based on customer response.

Additionally, Publix Super Markets Charities is donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross and United Way for relief efforts for the affected areas.

“Our customers trust us to provide a way for them to donate to help their neighbors in need,” said Director of Communications Maria Brous. “It is our privilege to support our communities when disaster strikes.”

Lakeland, Florida-based Publix is privately owned and operated by its more than 200,000 employees, with 2018 sales of $36.1 billion. Currently, Publix has 1,239 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

For 22 consecutive years, the company has been named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, and Publix ranked No. 1 on Fortune’s inaugural list of Best Big Companies to Work For in 2019.
